Yes 100Mb is far to large for an indivual package. I guess I should only 
package up three or four music files for a package size around 10Mb. Really 
this is just to provide an out of the box working MOH capability.  If end 
deployments want more MOH they are free to install themselves.

Yes that could be a good idea.

We can't distribute those under Debian as you point out they are non-free.  
But I'll have a look at your package, but I imagine it is just a matter of 
dropping the mp3 in the correct directory.
